Apt for computing on the go
Display and Design
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10 (59-430551) flaunts a 10.1-inch HD LED backlit display with a standard resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. Thanks to the matte Anti Glare finish that the screen provides clear visuals under bright light and protects your eyes from getting fatigued from harmful glare rays. And the edge to edge multi touchscreen is useful for accessing tasks simply by moving your fingers.
It is housed in a 21mm thick black colored outfit which has a weight of just 1.2kg allowing you to tote around with it at ease. As is evident from the name, the laptop can also be used as a tablet simply by flipping the screen by up to 300 degrees.
Processor and OS
The dual mode machine is powered by a 1.5GHz Intel Celeron Dual Core N2807 processor. It is assisted by a 2GB DDR3 RAM expandable up to 8GB through 1 DIMM slot. Rich graphics is managed by the inbuilt Intel HD GPU. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS, the perfect interface for touch enabled gadgets.
Camera and Storage
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10 (59-430551) carries a 1MP webcam capable of managing high resolution video calls smoothly. For storage purposes, you can use the 500GB SATA hard disk.
Battery and Connectivity
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10 (59-430551) features a 3 cell Li-ion battery with up to 4 hours of backup. Connectivity wise, it supports WLAN, HDMI out, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0, 2 USB 2.0 slots and 1 USB 3.0 port.
Go for the Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10 (59-430551) if you need an easy to be carried around laptop that can also be used as a tablet. It falls in the low budget range which is justified by its poor configuration. The absence of Ethernet port is another disappointing feature.
